FREE has been reorganized and will now officially be known as:
ANNOUNCEMENT: DR. EDGAR MITCHELL is a Co-Founder of FREE, The Foundation for Research into Extraterrestrial Encounters.
The first Executive Director of FREE is DR. RUDY SCHILD, Emeritus Professor of Astrophysics at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics. Reinerio Hernandez, JD, MCP will be the Operations Manager.
FREE will have an ACADEMIC CONSULTANT BOARD who will be providing guidance and support to Dr. Rudy Schild and our Board of Directors. In addition, FREE will also have the categories of CONSULTANTS and Volunteers. In the very near future Dr. Schild and the Board of Directors will be reaching out to academics and non academics to determine if they have any interest in joining us as either an Academic Consultant or as a Consultant.
FREE will continue our EXPERIENCER RESEARCH STUDY and we are in the process of developing a separate research study on the possible relationship between NDEs and ET Contact. Dr. Jon Klimo will remain the Chair of the FREE Experiencer Research Committee.
Our Facebook Groups is called "FREE Experiencers" https://www.facebook.com/groups/FREE.Experiencers/
Over the last 18 months, FREE has been undertaking the first comprehensive multilingual academic research study on individuals that have had UFO related contact experiences, The FREE Experiencer Research Study.
We also included almost 200 questions from Dr. Kenneth Ring's book titled "“The Omega Project: Near Death Experiences, UFO Encounters, and Mind at Large”. As many of you know, Dr. Kenneth Ring is a retired tenured Professor of Psychology at the University of Connecticut and one of the world’s leading academic scholars on Near Death Experiences. "The Omega Project” compared several hundred individuals who had claimed either a Near Death Experience or a UFO related “Abduction” experience. Dr. Ring’s conclusion, also shared by many ET contact researchers, is that both the NDE and UFO abduction Experiencers have basically been transformed by their experiences into the same psychological profile!
· Dr. Ring states “… the most striking findings of the Omega Project, and perhaps the most thought-provoking, are those that point to a pervasive pattern of wide-ranging and powerful psycho-physical changes following either a UFO abduction or NDE experience.” A “psycho-physical” change refers to an alteration that involves both MIND and BODY. Dr. Ring states that these encounters may actually “REPROGRAM” an experiencer’s “physiological and nervous system so as to make that individual inwardly and environmentally more sensitive”. Dr. Ring’s observations regarding the belief and value shifts that occurred to both NDE and UFO abduction experiencers are just as startling. He states they “are tantamount to an entirely new worldview”. OUR PRELIMINARY FINDINGS CORROBORATE ALL OF DR. RING'S CONCLUSIONS!!
I have also attached a document titled "FREE's Programs for the Year 2016" which details our program agenda for this coming year. I have also attached photos of the 4 Co-Founders of FREE (Dr. Edgar Mitchell, Dr. Rudy Schild, Mary Rodwell, Rey Hernandez).
